Sometimes you ask yourself, “Just how low can they go”, thinking we’ve seen the bottom.
Well folks no we haven’t. Apparently the judge in the Amber Guyger trial is being accused of Judicial misconduct for hugging the defendant, giving her a bible, and saying a short prayer with her after the sentencing was over.
The compassion shown by both the family and the judge was truly touching, this is just sickening to see people try and make political hay out of it and threaten the judge’s job and career.
I think the sentence was proper and fair and appropriate for the totality of the situation. And mercy is an inherent part of justice, so permitting the hug was proper, particularly as the official proceedings had concluded.
